Breakneck Bridge (Pennsylvania)
Posted May 2, 2017

I messed up; when I took pictures on April 11th, I thought I was photographing the Eckert Bridge when in reality I shot the Breakneck Bridge. I've moved the pictures to the correct bridge. Please accept my apology for the error.

This bridge is beautiful!! I love the look of it. Sadly, it looks like fire claimed it.

Yeah, after thinking about it you're right. If I happen to come across photos of the original bridge I'll create a separate entry. For now, I guess I can leave the fact that this is the second incarnation of the bridge and whatnot in the description.

Thanks for the essay Sherman Cahal. I grew up not far from there and passed it about 100,000 times in my youth.

Piney Creek Bridge (Pennsylvania)

George -

There is no tunnel is this section of the township. The land slopes down to Piney Creek which with the trees may give the appearance of a tunnel. However, if you look up closer to the Clarion River (north from this location), you'll see the photos I took of the Clarion Trestle at:

http://bridgehunter.com/pa/clarion/bh73987/

There is a tunnel on the south side of the Clarion River, the trestle over the river, and then another tunnel on the north side of the river. I took pictures of the south tunnel and trestle back in July but never got a chance to check out the northern tunnel. It was a rather notable bridge in its day but I was surprised there was nothing on it, so I created the page. Amazing, a girl fell from the bridge in the 1980s and (surprisingly) lived. It's a party spot for teenagers and college kids. There's a hole in the middle of the span from some idiots building a fire there.

I have other photos of the area on my Flickr album at:

which are more than welcome to view.

I walked off Piney Creek Road to the left of photo #1 and down to the creek. The shot you see is part of the old railroad line that runs across the other half of the road and across the creek. I couldn't remember how to get there and was pressed for time. If I get a chance in the next couple of days, I'll take pictures.

The railroad bridge is about 100 yards south of where the old bridge was.
